No one immune to North Korea threat - U.S. Ambassador to UN

No one immune to North Korea threat - U.S. Ambassador to UNU.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley accused North Korea on Tuesday of intimidating the entire international community with its nuclear program, military ability, and cyberattacks, and said any country that doesn’t implement U.N. sanctions is supporting Pyongyang’s actions.

This is reported by The Associated Press.

“No one is immune to the threat of North Korea,” she told reporters before emergency closed-door consultations by the U.N. Security Council on the North’s weekend ballistic missile launch, which experts said demonstrated a significant technological jump with the rocket flying higher and for a longer period of time.

“We’re not going to continue to just say go ahead and test as often as you want,” Haley said, flanked by the South Korean and Japanese ambassadors. “This is a true threat to every country in the world. ... We’re going to make sure we put the pressure on them economically, diplomatically, politically and internationally.”

The Security Council, which has imposed six rounds of sanctions on the North, discussed possible further action at Tuesday’s meeting. Haley previously indicated that new sanctions could target oil, a critical import for North Korea mainly from China, and she said Tuesday the U.S. also wants sanctions on organizations and businesses in third countries that are helping Pyongyang.
